Public wifi change afterhours

Starting today, there is a change to the library’s public wifi system after-hours. Instead of public wifi being available 24/7, it is now turned off at the following times:

  • 9:15pm – 7am on Sunday night – Saturday morning (weekdays)
  • 6:30pm – 9am Saturday night – Sunday morning

If people try to access our public wifi after hours, they will still see the “TSCPL-Public” name on their device. They just won’t be able to connect. This will not affect staff wifi or our VOIP phone system.

Why? Security has reported several incidents that have occurred in the parking lot after the library is closed. The parking lot is posted for the hours we are open. Having extended hours for wifi sends the wrong message and encourages people to come on library property during the hours we have said they may not be on the premises.

Have a question? Feel free to ask!
